    Adventure into the future

    This book is truly a sexy satire using futuristic police procedures and robots to tell the story of Noah Dane. When Noah's partner is killed and the killer is the only one from the Blue Scoprs to escape his 50 caliber Desert Eagle XIX, Noah is hot on his trail. With his new partner, a robot that is a clone of Marilyn Monroe, he searches the mean streets of the San Francisco. Bruce Golden's skill as a satirist, his imaginative depiction of the future in our law enforcement departments, and his vivid characters, intertwined with the everyday personal problems that the reader can relate to, makes for an entertaining tale.

    A reviewer

    Engaging from the start, this mystery set in the future is sprinkled with subtle humor--an undertone of social commentary and satire that doesn't get in the way of the storytelling. Fast moving, filled with great dialogue and quirky characters, I couldn't put it down. And if you're a Marilyn Monroe fan, you'll want to read this and see how she's given new life. Without giving too much away, there's a conspiracy here that goes beyond murder--it threatens humanity's very existence.
